Captain Cuthbert on how he came to replace Alan SheehanCaptain Scott Cuthbert explains why he was summoned from the bench just seconds before kick-off yesterday at Plymouth to replace Alan Sheehan.
The 29-year-old went on, headed straight for the captains’ coin toss, then produced what boss Nathan Jones described as an “immense captain’s performance” as the Hatters weathered an early storm to triumph 3-0.
Cuthbert said: “I was warming up with the lads and Sheehan just said to me ‘I’m struggling a little bit with my calf, keep yourself warm’. I’ve literally just put my bum on the bench and then got the call to go on, and it’s all a whirlwind.
“Before you know it, you’re on the pitch playing. It’s certainly something that’s never happened to me before. It was mental!"
